Reside Named in Top 5% Of UK Agents

Reside has been named as one of the country’s leading letting agents in the largest and most rigorous analysis of the property sector.

The Best Estate Agent Guide, which is produced by The Property Academy in conjunction with Rightmove, is the only industry award which does not require agents to nominate themselves or pay to enter. Every estate and lettings agency on Rightmove, which amounts to over 90% of agents in the country, is automatically entered into the awards.

The Best Estate Agent Guide covers over 90% of UK estate agents, is independently assessed and transparent

Gold Award Winners: The Reside Team

Initially, every agent’s Rightmove data is analysed over a six-month period against criteria such as average letting time, and how frequently properties returned to the market after a let fell through. The best performing 2,500 agencies are then submitted to mystery shopped to put their customer service and efficiency to the test.

Everyone at Reside is absolutely honoured to have been awarded the Gold Award in the 2021/22 Best Estate Agent Guide, the highest rating that can be achieved which places us in the top 5% of agents nationwide.

Ben Bower, Reside’s Managing Director, commented, “This award is a wonderful testament to the hard work of our staff, whose expertise in lettings provides complete peace of mind to our landlords. Being placed in the top 5% of agents in the country reassures us that we have been getting it right to date, but rest assured we won’t rest on our laurels – we are always trying to improve our services and own our expertise.”
